Translation of Love by Alice Montalvo-Tribue
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Publisher: Alice Montalvo-Tribue
Date Published: April 18th 2013
Genre: New Adult Romance
When I first started this book, I rolled my eyes. I was thinking puh-lease, one bad break-up cannot seriously screw a person up that badly. Your making a big deal out of nothing.
Translation of Love is told from Ellie's point of view. She's not the most exciting character. Too hung on herself and her mysterious past relationship. She meets hot Latino singer Victor Garza and they start to date. They have issues, and bitches gonna fight.
Everything is sort of expected as far as the plot went. The characters were predictable and kind of boring. I can't say I was impressed with the story. It really needs some more originality, which it unfortunately lacked.
The one redeeming quality was the cover, which is what drew me in to the book in the first place. I guess that just gpes to show you really shouldn't judge a book by it's cover.
